As parents and carers will already know, we have been learning about life cycles of different living things. After learning so much about the life cycle of a caterpillar, the opportunity was finally here for the children to watch and document at first-hand the different stages a caterpillar goes through before it turns into a beautiful butterfly. The children watched with amazement as the tiny caterpillars crawled around the pot. They were overjoyed with the new addition to our menagerie at Russell Hill. The children were also able to use their magnifying glasses to investigate in detail, and just couldn’t believe their eyes as to how small the they were and how many legs caterpillars really do have. We will keep parents and carers updated from their current stage through to metamorphosis.
